Re: The Worlds End movie

I happened to catch Hot Fuzz on BBC America just a week or two before I saw TWE, but I've only seen Shaun in its entirety once and that was at least a number of months ago. I remember finding it very clever, but I don't like zombie movies much so I doubt it'll ever be a favorite. At some point, though, I am going to want to watch all three in succession.

It's interesting how they're all in different genres, but they all have a common theme (and this is a bit of a spoiler for Hot Fuzz) of the protagonists being surrounded by the enemy, having to fight against the whole community. And although only two of them have paranormal elements, I guess they do all count as horror of one form or another -- supernatural horror for SotD, slasher horror for HF, and science fiction horror for TWE.

Not to mention the Cornetto connection, which is easy to miss in World's End.

Ending part with Gary in the bars with his new gang made me feel Gary didn't grow up and was still trying to live in the past.

Movie was very funny and to me a lot better than any of the Hangover movies.
Shame more people don't go see this, as on a Saturday night only 4 other people where in the theater and a older couple was there too but walked out about 15 mins into the movie.
I couldn't catch it on opening night like I wanted to, so I had to wait a week.THE MOVIE THEATER I FAVOR COULDN'T BE BOTHERED TO RUN TWE FOR A FULL WEEK, BUT COULD SHOW THAT F*CKING ONE DIRECTION MOVIE ON 3 SCREENS! Needless to say, I won't be returning to that theater. >.>

I saw it in hipsterville (Silverlake, Los Angeles) in a super packed large movie theater that I've never seen sold out before (not even for Avengers). It was an amazing experience...

Re: The Worlds End movie

I saw it last night and liked it a lot. My (admittedly quite small) theater was completely sold out and the crowd was clearly having a blast.

Perhaps the greatest thing about The World's End is that its first third, which features just the barest hint of the sci-fi elements, is so brilliant in its nuanced and hilarious portrayal of the movie's protagonists that I wouldn't have minded to just continue watching *that* movie. But that doesn't mean I liked the movie it becomes after the sudden genre shift any less. There are lots of cool visuals, excellent fight and chase scenes, and yet, the brilliantly acted characters and their inner lives never fade into the background. The World's End is a poignant coming of middle age story, an inventive sci-fi yarn, and an utterly hilarious comedy all in one, and can easily stand toe-to-toe with its two Cornetto Trilogy predecessors.

9/10
